I ordered your russian listening course and couldn’t come close to pronouncing any of the Russian words. This challenge gives me a fighting chance. Thanks young man.

Pronunciation is the unsung hero of foreign language mastery…

Without proper pronunciation, it's not easy for native speakers to understand you, and crucially it's also harder for the learner to understand the native speakers!

Think about it, if you can't produce the sound accurately – how will you be able to hear it when it's being produced by others?

Yet, in modern language learning pronunciation is almost entirely ignored. Everyone skips the first chapter of text books, apps provide little to no engagement, and group classes are a thing of the past, especially in this pandemic world.

You know the feeling. You're talking to a native speaker in your target language, and they constantly have to ask you to repeat words and phrases.

Or, you're listening to your target language and you just can't make out the individual words.

So you end up looking like a giant question mark.

Having better pronunciation skills also means native speakers are less likely to switch to English, so you can get crucial speaking practice in.

Plus, everyone in your life will get a whole new level of respect and admiration as you've achived a level of pronunciation in a quick timeframe, which few foreigners reach in a lifetime.

Having a thick foreigner's accent may be endearing to some, but completely inappropriate in a business setting dealing with partners, clients, customers, and colleagues.
